Hello hello! How have you been? I was taking a break from the virtual world, but I here I am 🙂 And with a yummy and gluten-free recipe.
(Are you already drooling with the melted chocolate chips?)
If you are, or even if you are not, a fan of chocolate with citrus ingredients, you should try this recipe. I created it to bake cookies for a friend who follows a gluten-free diet and she said she loved them. You could definitely replace the almond meal with regular flour, but I advise you not to omit the orange zests. To me, they are the wonderful touch.
Oatmeal orange chocolate chip cookies (makes 16 small cookies)
1 cup oats
1⁄2 cup almond meal
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
1⁄2 cup brown sugar or other sugar of choice
2 tablespoon orange zest, freshly grated
1⁄2 cup chocolate chips (or a little more)
1. Pre-heat oven to 375F.
2. In a bowl, stir together the first five ingredients.
3. Combine the orange zest, chocolate chips. Finally, add the egg and mix well until
the dry ingredients are well coated and moist.
4. Make cookie balls using a tablespoon and bake at 375F for 10 minutes or until
cookies are golden brown. *Remember that oven times vary.
